O Vine, Boast not


Son of man, what is the vine tree more than any tree,

or than a branch which is among the trees of the forest?

[Ezekiel 15:2 KJV] 

***

God’s vine,

Chosen by the creator

Made for his purpose

**

My soul what are you?

For without grace,

You are of all men miserable

**

For divine goodness

Has made thee fruitful

Having been planted in God’s good soil

**

Does thou boast?

Fir as the increase of thy field

So is the increase of thy debt to thy creator

**

Think not my soul to exalt thyself

It is none but mercy that speaks for thee

Boast not, for you are naught without the vinedresser
